Independent Bookstore Day 2018

Independent bookstores all across America are having a party on Saturday, April 28th. Come on out to The Bookloft for a fun day of exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on this day at a store. Not before. Not online. Not after they run out.

Chat with Author Kathline Carr

Author Kathline Carr will be here from 1-3pm to meet & greet all you Indie Bookstore Day supporters! She'll be signing Miraculum Monstrum, a contemporary feminist fairy tale, and you will have a chance to ask her what "hybrid poetics" means. And then tell us, please, because we're dying for a good answer!
